POCO A POCO
Poco A Poco, in musical terms, means 'little by little' indicating an incremental change in tempo over a long period of time either up or down. Developing Dementia has a similar effect on the mind. It slowly creeps in and out, taking possession of one's sense of being, as well as their memories. Music has proven to have the power of reviving memories for those living with Dementia and can be a powerful tool to help reconnect with feelings and emotions that have been stolen by the condition.
This piece was created with a blend of generative stable-diffusion Ai, animated scans of my grandma's paintings and family photos.
Here I explore music's powers to revive memories for those who suffer from the disease, like my grandparents who both have been incorporated into the artwork.
